“Will you do nothing to put down the evil side of that foolish proverb, “Nothing succeeds like success!” Bread success in its own den, fight the most popular evils, espouse the poorest and the weakest causes, if you believe that they are inspired by one element of right. It takes a strong man to stand alone. It is only a man here and there that can raise a tune, almost everybody tries to have a mumble after it is raised. But stand alone, young friend; stand alone, poor man; stand with the right. We are in the minority, but we are in the minority of God. I do not believe in majorities, popularly so called. I believe men should be weighted as much as numbered. I would rather have the support of one man of a certain kind, than the support of ten thousand of a kind directly opposite.”
Joseph Parker, D.D.
